    WSUS 3.0 SP1 x64 not downloading updates, Content directory size 0 KB

    Hi All,

    I'm having problem with my WSUS 3.0 SP1 server which i install in my Windows Server 2003 Std R2 SP2 x64 edition, it seems that the WSUS directory is always 0 KB (empty) even though the synchronization process still working every week.

    I've type the proxy credentials in the console Options | Update Source and Proxy Server | Proxy tab. and check the "Allow basic authentication" too.

    I've tried "proxycfg -u" comes back fine and it doesn't seems to work as the directory is still 0 KB in size.

    Can anyone shed some light in this matter please ?

    Thanks.

    Is there anything in the event log about the syncs or database, WSUS can be quite touchy when it comes to its setup. Also are there any packages queued and approved for download in the console as it won't put anything in there untill it has some content to grab.

    You could also look through the options to find the file cleanup wizard and trigger that to see if it generates any error messages.

    you need to give the "user" network service read access to the entire drive wsus stores its updates and full control of the wsus folder

    ah yes, it turns out that the login that I use in proxy credentials doesn't like DOMAIN\User format therefor i must remove the domain information so that the proxy acccept the LDAP authentication.

    now it works fine and downloading approx 20GB+ of updates.
